From an EBAY seller: "'Seneca Speckled Egg' Pole variety, stringless. Neat little round beans that resemble a bird egg. As the pods mature they develop a purple mottling to them. This is a late maturing bean."

From sampleseeds.com: "This is a really neat bean. As the pods plump up they get striped with dark purple and the mottling becomes increasingly stronger as the pods age. The bean seeds are small and spotted and do resemble birds eggs. It is a heavy producer of bean pods. The only downfall of this bean is it is late to fully mature, mid October. So seed savers in short season area may have trouble with seed collection."
